If he’s not the most famous man named Steve, funny man Steve Martin is staking his claim to the title with a new mononymic documentary. With the help of Morgan Neville, who is no stranger to documenting the lives of famous people, Martin is joining the likes of Albert Brooks and Mary Tyler Moore with the forthcoming STEVE! (martin). Split into two distinct parts, the first film tracks Martin’s ascent in stand-up through archival footage before allowing us to see his “quest for personal fulfillment” in the second film. Not only is Neville hoping to shed new light on the Only Murders actor, but he’s doing so in groundbreaking fashion. Each half of the project was composed of entirely different teams that weren’t allowed to see each other’s work with the end game being “a singular picture of a singular artist.” No matter what order you decide to watch the film in, it’s set to premiere on March 29th on Apple TV+.
Apparently not one to learn from his own parable, Steven Spielberg is assisting Universal Studios with its Epic Universe expansion, which will involve five immersive experiences drawing on the likes of Super Nintendo, Harry Potter and How to Train Your Dragon, a futuristic world called Celestial Park and a movie monster-inspired jaunt in the Dark Universe. Universal Destinations & Experiences CEO Mark Woodbury describes the project as “the most technologically advanced park (they’ve) ever done.” Thrill seekers will be able to walk through portals and transport to other worlds when the park opens in 2025.
Until then, we’re getting our thrills on the timeline thanks to some hysterical tweets. Today’s funniest ones include those about a special American tradition, a neighborhood’s famous stew and perhaps the greatest free thinker of our generation.
